I have an engineering background, graduated last December, and accepted MBB over FAANG (product design & manufacturing engineering offers) . This bowl’s focus on exiting consulting into FAANG (cont)
Which Big 4 has the best benefits?
Currently a post-MBA returning consultant at MBB. What firms should I target with significant Private Equity Ops groups or value teams? Have to leave after 2 years in consulting because I was sponsored but want to make sure that I understand the point at which I should be reaching out, etc.
How to get into top 3 MBA with decent (3.7-3.8) undergrad grades from a state school, 740+ GMAT, as a straight white male at a Big 4?
Big 4 to tech startup AMA!
Can somebody refer me at MBB, Accenture, EY and PwC? Victim of Deloitte layoff. Would appreciate any and all the help I can get!
Is there a bowl that would be for best exit opportunities for those who are in consulting? My experience is in tech risk. Kind of feel like I’m stuck leaving the big 4 to only go into a compliance role in industry
Assuming you are smart enough to do both (I know big assumption), are you better off being a SWE/data scientist at FAANG or equivalent level at MBB (based on YOE) from a compensation:WLB ratio?
HYP grad with summa, MBB, 750+ GMAT, but weak extracurriculars - how likely is one of HSW?
Is 112K for a startup good for 2 YOE in MBB in nyc? I was personally targeting 135K at least but this seems interesting
Current S1 here. Is it okay if my resume experience is just: B4 Internship > Associate > Senior? (All in the same firm/practice) Never done other internships. The only other thing I could include is a student assistant job I had in college. Not sure if that's even relevant. Guess just the progression at this 1 firm is enough? Just looks a bit incomplete on the resume.
When you explain to your non-accounting friends what the Big 4 is and they say, "oh sounds like the Ivy League for accounting firms" >>>>
Just had an interview with a jeopardy multi day winner, multiple degrees and majors from top schools, ex-mbb, and held a major position in a major US city governance, while now being a director at a F50 company. All before the age of 35. Makes me just so feel so dumb and insignificant despite knowing that's probably not healthy haha. Anyone else have a similar experience? What was that peron's background?
senior in audit - received offer from GT for manager position, and went to talk to my partners (im in big 4) partners matched salary and offered manager (i was supposed to make mgr next yr). (cont'd)
For those who have gotten into HSW without having started a startup/non-profit, worked at MBB/PE/FAANG, or gone to Ivy/MIT/Stanford undergrad, could you please share your profile/story? -ORM & mildly above average gal trying to find hope
MBB 🐠’s, what are some viable options for someone with 5 yrs of ERP implementation experience to join an MBB?

Since George Floyd's murder and the sudden Corporate America "wokeness," I (black guy) have been routinely contacted by unacquainted Partners who explicitly state something to the effect "Client X wants diversity, so we'd like you on this deal..." It really comes across as tone deaf and completely patronizing. I appreciate the efforts to diversity (albeit forced), but Partners really need to learn how to not be so supercilious in the approach. You don't have to overtly state that I'm the quota.
Has anyone else found HR timelines to be a crawl during all of this year? Top 5 bank or smaller bank, it’s totally glacial pace, it doesn’t matter. I try to normally be engaged and quick with stuff client side or internal stuff but it truly blows my mind how slow HR is on things. Like if I was to be this slow client side, I’d be fired. Does anyone have similar experiences over the past year?
Am I an attractive candidate at all? Or is it silly to think I could jump soon for a comp increase? 1 yoe BAH fed (7 yoe in nonprofit sector before that), currently at 90k. Have some generalist certifications (agile, prosci, working on instructional design). Non-technical, no master’s. Resume is mostly attractive bc of extensive international/cross-cultural experience & DoS experience. Am I still too “meh” with only 1yoe & no tech skills?
I’m 2.5 weeks out of training and haven’t been utilized to the full extent. I haven’t been staffed and rarely have been asked to complete smaller one-off projects. Who should I talk to? MD? Associate? Other analysts? Broader question is ‘how do I ask for work?’
Anyone have experience with bariatric surgery, good or bad? I’m 6’0, currently 270lb (normal range pre-Covid was 220-250lbs) female recently diagnosed with Graves Disease (thyroid disorder) that has me swinging hormonally all the time affecting my mood and emotional coping skills, metabolic hunger signals, energy levels etc. I’m interested in a consultation and feeling bariatric surgery may a tool to provide some “bumpers” on my weight situation. Interested in others experience here!
Just had an interview for industry. Didn't have that warm fuzzy feeling after it like "I'm gonna get this job". UGH. I flubbed 1 question about a go to market strategy and it was downhill from there
Any tips in internal transfers? I’d like to be relocated to a few other offices in other countries (US or Canada), and from what I know getting a visa can be the difficult part. (Cont’d)
